The boat ride across the lake


We left Eagle’s Nest today and made our way for Lake Atitlan (Santiago on the map).

It’s always a fun surprise to drive to the lake and get off the bus.  The students ask, “Where is the hotel?” My response, “Get on that boat over there and it will take us!”  We got on a huge two level boat and drive across the lake.  It takes about an hour.  The photos are from our trip.  It’s beautiful.  Breath-taking. 

We arrived at the hotel and had lunch.  Unloaded the bags…we’ve gotten really good at that!  Got everyone to their rooms and gave them their spending money.  They went out for a couple hours to look around and shop is this quaint little town. 

After dinner we had another great time of worship!  Davis, one our amazing translators, shared his faith story.  It’s amazing.  Someone gave him a Christian tract and he threw it in the drawer of his night table.  One night he came home and all the lights were off in his room except the drawer of this night table was glowing.  The tract was glowing.  He actually ignored it the first time and then it happened again and he read it and gave his life to Christ.  Wow our God works in mysterious ways!

20 more students shared their take-away from the trip and William (our Salvadorian pastor/evangelist) preached tonight from Romans 1:16.  He talked about the POWER of God.  It was a good teaching.

All the students are in their rooms sleeping and we head to Antigua tomorrow for our last full day in Guatemala! 

Thanks for all of your support!
